JASDEC Registration Information

Share trading in the Japanese market is cleared by JASDEC (Japan Securities Depository Center, Inc.). Most dividends and many corporate actions on shares are distributed directly by JASDEC to investor bank accounts and JASDEC registers shareholder information for this purpose. In order to trade shares via Interactive Brokers, we require the authorized JASDEC investor identification code. Please use the instructions below to provide name, address, and bank information in the required character format. This information will be transmitted securely to JASDEC which will validate the information and provide IB with the necessary authorization codes. As soon as we receive the JASDEC authorization (which may take up to a week), we will activate trading permissions on TSE shares and will notify you accordingly.

Instructions to provide information for getting JASDEC investor identification code:
